~ You can marinate the meats and store in the fridge for a day/two before use.

~ You can use regular Ginger and Garlic paste, and also any brands of sauce variety available.

  • Preheat Oven to grill setting, Spray a large oven tray with non-stick cooking spray, Add the marinated meats and grill turning a few times until done to your liking.
  • dot meats with Butter/Oil just before finishing off grilling.

  1. For oven grilling for ribs do you cover with foil? And approximately how long should it be grilled for? Do you bake first and the grill? At what temp?

    1. Salaams Quraisha.

      No, don’t cover with foil. Single layer on a baking sheet is fine. Bake at 180-190 degrees Celsius, turning a few times. Approximately 25-30 minutes. If the ribs are thinner cuts, then less time. Just before finishing off, you can switch the grill function on, baste with any leftover marinade/sauce, to get a charred or crisper finish.
      If you feel the ribs need more Grilling then up your time.
